The Turkey Trot STL 5K course in Arnold is flat, fast, and scenic. Participants should keep their eyes open for turkeys and other wildlife. The course is certified for distance accuracy by USA Track & Field (MO15025LJ). The 1/2 Mile Youth Race course (not shown) is a flat out-and-back course along the last 1/4 mile of the 5K course. Wheelchair racers would be better served at TTSTL St. Charles or Downtown, which has a wheelchair-friendly course and a wheelchair race division. Children in courteously-driven strollers are welcome. Dogs are not permitted on the course.

Awards are awarded to the top 3 overall male and female 5K finishers and the top 3 men and women in the following 5K age groups: 12 & Under, 13-19, 20-24, 25-29,..., 65-69, and 70 & Over.
